COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
G-Thing! is a Ginger Spice Ale led by a fresh ginger zing thatís followed by a bready malt backbone. Its subtle roasty notes and mild hop bitterness slowly give way to a serene cinnamon spiciness as the malt tones melt away.

The description they give about the beer is spot on! I truly enjoyed the way the ginger taste stayed lingering from start to finish. Someone deserves some recognition for this delicious treat.

Nutmeg and cardamom nose. Cleat garnet brown, medium tan head. Ginger and cardamom. Finishes with nutmeg. Medium body, but lacking a flavot base. Not very enjoyable for me. A bit of a spiced mess.

Smell winter spices cinnamon nutmeg and ginger. Decent body nice dark color.Not well balanced but grew on me as I drank. Some hop bite in the finish. Slight herbal medicinal finish. Very close to old fezziwig actually would like to do a blind test and see if I could tell the difference. Enjoyed this.

EithCubes (5024) - New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle. Nose of ginger and spice, light caramel, touch of cinnamon, less roast. Pours a deep brown-burgundy with plenty of slow-moving carbonation, a noisy tan head. Watery body with light bitterness, light sweetness assumedly from the spice, dull caramel under stronger roast (sort of like roast chicory), a big honk of ginger to deaden the rest. Touch of cinnamon. A rye/pumpernickel finish with fresh citrus just lightly ladled on top, but only for accent. Fresh and enjoyable at a moderate pace, and thereís some good malt roundness here. Yum!

Beer4000 (4541) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2014
355 ml bottle. Clear, deep amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is dominated by ginger, but also some cinnamon and caramel malt. Flavor has also lots of cinnamon, but not too much like some ginger ales tends to be with an almost burning ginger flavor. Soft caramel malt, moderate bitterness and some Christmas cake spices like cinnamon. Medium body and nice in aftertaste. This is a very nice spicy ale for me, e.g. something more than just a novelty beer, rather a beer I might enjoy to drink occasionally.

MadIndian (2416) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Notes of cinnamon, spice, and a lot of ginger. The finish was heavy ginger and roasted malt. Not bad for the style.

Beerdedone (2669) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of ginger, cinnamon, light caramel and other spices. Flavor of gingerbread, caramel, cinnamon, bready malts and had some winter spices.

Bottle. If you really like ginger, you might like this. Too much for me, felt like more of a novelty beer with really no substance. Iím out on this one.
